Beinn Ime direct from Arrochar

Finally climbed Beinn Ime eight years after missing it out while climbing the Cobbler and Beinn Narnian. A long but great walk from Arrochar on a very pleasant day. Good to see extensive work being done on the path from the fenceline up to the summit of Beinn Ime, three tough young guys working on i...

An Teallach

Unfortunately a failed attempt about 200m and 1km from summit due to low visibility, very strong winds and heavy rain - we will return.

Re: B***** Weather Forecasts

If you don't like the weather - just wait !!
Or for this summer 'just wait 5 minutes'

Beinn Chabhair from Derrydaroch

Beinn Chabhair is well know for its boggy walk-in along the Ben Glas Burn, so I decided to try it from the north starting at Derrydaroch on the West Highland Way - recently described as the 'dry side' by grumpy old bagger. http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=45616 My planned...

Beinn Dearg & Ben Gullipen circuit

Another short hike on to the Highland Boundary Fault (HBF) line. A pleasant walk through along a forest track to Ben Gullipen with its various masts at the top. Then it gets more interesting as you climb up and down the very steep heathery rock ridges of the HBF until you reach the summit of Beinn D...

Re: South Africa?

Try and find some time to trek in the Drakensbergs, I had a fabulous 4 days trekking up to Mafadi Peak last year. I was in Jo'burg so it was a bit easier than it would be from Cape Town (http://goo.gl/maps/MFw54). I went with Ian Shooter's team from Pietermaritzburg called Drakensberg Hiker http://w...

Re: Festive wanders: Knock of Braemoray

I did this in an hour from the roadside one summer evening last year while heading up to Findhorn and agree that it is a really good short workout due to the height of the heather and lack of paths - great 360 panoramic views on a clear day. I am old enough to have travelled as a wee loon by train o...
